Transient Shaper in particular is pure magic.
That's one of the few I did buy before. It is pretty good. Also bought Faturator in the past so I don't know if that one is also free now, but it is also very good at what it does.
I got Transient Shaper and Faturator from the Mix & Master Bundle (right before it was removed from the shop last month). So I've had some time to play with Transient Shaper, but it's still fairly new to me. Love it! I still haven't made my way though all the Kilohearts REs that came with the M&M upgrade, let alone the rest of them which were recently made free. They are really great REs, though. Simple, effective, and precise - perfect for Reason's environment. I'm loving the idea of a Kilohearts Combi2 competition; Kilohearts REs are perfect for such a thing. I'm really curious to see what the RT users would create in such a challenge. What kind of CV monsters would Loque create?
Faturator and Disperser are the only two Kilohearts REs that they aren't giving away (both still being priced at $59). I have them both from my recent M&M rig upgrade, but I can't say I am all that enthusiastic about either of them. Disperser is a bit of a one-trick pony, and that one trick is very, very subtle. I'm sure there is a time and place for it, but I'm not really sure when and where that may be (perhaps in the browser, collecting dust?). And I think Faturator's drive and fuzz sound absolutely horrid; I appreciate this RE much more when those two knobs are turned completely down to 0%. The stereo turbo knob is fantastic, though. The color knob seems basically be a frequency cutoff filter. And I'm always happy to see a dry/wet mix knob on an effect device. (Sorry Kilohearts, I don't mean to badmouth your products, I'm just not very excited about these two... kind of funny that I'm more excited about all the new free REs than the two remaining paid ones)
I can't believe they are giving away ONE. I trialed it a long time ago and never pulled the trigger, but I'm happy to have it in my rack now. Been playing with it the last two days and it sounds great.
